Void warning number 1

ANd if people want to see your contributions, they can check your contributions page. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 23:42, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. People do it all the time. The only ones who get in trouble are those who ignore the warnings.  :D --ニョロトノ666 23:44, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

About the custom sprites

We've actually already argued long and hard about this. But the consensus is, right now at least, that as long as the sprite's don't detract from the articles at all (i.e., as long as they aren't blatantly ugly), there's no reason not to have them. True, they don't really add anything, but neither do things like colors or curved borders in the templates. It's just something to add a little visual variety and appeal to the 'pedia. I understand how you feel; I just wanted to let you know what the status quo was, before some zealot came and chewed you out. --((Marton imos)) 23:55, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your understanding and consideration. I wish you luck in all your contributions to Bulbapedia!--Tavisource 16:02, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Forums

On the left side of the screen, there is a menu that says "Navigation." Click on the link that says Bulbawiki forum (it's the fourth one down from the top) and you'll be there. Hope this helps. --PAK Man Talk 00:24, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Signature

Ah..so you need help with signatures? Well, first, go to my preferences, then check the box that says Raw signatures (without automatic link and in the box above it, put in the code for your signature. But remember, Bulbapedia does not allow pictures in them. So I have made a signature for you, which you could use to tweak to make you own customized signature:

Landfish7
[[User:Landfish7|<font color="orange">Land</font>]][[User talk:Landfish7|<span style="font-family:Broadway"><small><font color="teal">fish</font></small></span>]][[Special:Contributions/Landfish7|<font color="blue"><sup>7</sup></font>]]

--Tavisource 16:12, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Ah..ya...sure...I'll add you.--Tavisource 18:19, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Void warning number 2

Contrary to what Fiddler said, there's no long a hard cap on userspace edits--but don't abuse the privilege. (See the most recent Message from the Editor). -- evkl (need to talk?) 16:24, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, this. Not my fault that it still says that in the warning. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 16:28, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry

These users are incorrectly misinformed, there isn't a limit anymore, but that doesn't mean you can go crazy about it. Keep mainspace contributions up, and keep userspace edits to a minuimum. MaverickNate 16:27, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

There is no longer a limit, but don't edit it so much. MaverickNate 16:35, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Meh, Chocolate and I don't get along very well...but it is a long story that I do not want to dive into. MaverickNate 17:23, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Still editing it too much and your edits are very minor. I suggest you stop editing for today and, in future, use the preview button as much as possible. Also, editing a timestamp...that's just silly. Cipher (Talk) 21:00, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Im . . . . . . . . .im . . . i'm sorry, but um, you realize the policy is now that you can't edit 25 times now right? Just look at the templates discussion page. -- Landfish7 21:03, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Uh, no, I was stating that the mentioned user edited his userpage 25 times. Believe me, you are not allowed to edit your page 25 times per day. Even if there's no limit, 25 times is definitely too much. Cipher (Talk) 21:08, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, Its just i have been getting so much different answers that i don't really know what to think but for now one i limit myself to 2 times a day ok, again im sorry. -- Landfish7 21:10, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Void warning number three

Just listen yo these ppl,they've been here for a while...and just try not to over do your edits. You can find all the policies under Help.--Tavisource 21:10, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
If you look at the comment i made above i've just been really confused lately from all the different people telling me different things but for now on i am limiting myself to 2 times a day, i am sorry for all the trouble. -- Landfish7 21:13, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
What they mean is this- you have made only one (1) contribution to the mainspace; the mainspace being articles like Pokémon and Ash. Basically, an article that is informative. I, for instance, use Bulbapedia for gaming help, learning about the members of the Elite Four so that I can beat them easilly. Most, if not all people that use Bulbapedia and are not Users do not look at User:, User talk: and Talk: pages. These pages, while beneficial, do not make Bulbapedia a Pokémon encyclopedia. When you go to someone's talk page to say that you are sorry for making too many talk page contributions, you are making a talk page contribution. To be an active member of the community, you need to make contributions to the mainspace. I hope I made everything a little but clearer to you. Thank you, --RexRacer -talk 21:26, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
wait were talking about user talk?! I thought they met the userpage not discussion X( -- Landfish7 21:31, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
*cough* It says User talk: up there, right?--RexRacer -talk 21:34, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Im sorry but i am really confused, im not trying to break the rules but yet i keep doing it. I need more clarification. -- Landfish7 21:37, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Userspace policy and Talk abuse are the two that you seem to be having troubles with. Read over them, and then look through all the links in you welcome template. --freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:40, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Okay. If the title of a page (this one being User talk:Landfish7) starts with a namespace definer (this one being User talk:) then don't edit it for a while. If it doesn't (such as Quilava) feel free to edit it. Talk page and User: contributions are not helpful to Bulbapedia.--RexRacer -talk 21:40, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

There are some exceptions...--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:43, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm curious

Is it purposeful that both the "fish" and the "7" in your signature link to your talk page?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:27, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

No but i had so much trouble messing around with my signature that i just stopped working on it. Landfish7 21:28, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I felt this was needed

I pardoned and removed the above warnings. I feel that they have been misguided, misleading, and very unfair. It is your first days, and the discussions and people have been very misleading towards you. I feel like you deserve a clean slate and now that the above warnings have been voided, I am giving you one. If you edit more main informative pages, people are less likely to yell at you, and I think that you haven't deserved the above ones. Just edit more mai, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here. MaverickNate 00:19, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

You are allowed to edit any talk space or your own userpage. You aren't in trouble, we just want you to add or edit something to the main pages with info in order for you to gain these priviledges. That's why these people were yelling at you. MaverickNate 20:05, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Pokeballs

The correct spelling of "Pokeball" is Poké Ball (plural: Poké Balls). If you don't know how to make é, it's ALT+0233 on a PC. Alternatively, use the character palette below for é and other special characters. - espeonA 00:58, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

link templates

USE THEM!!! I'm not an adminisrator, but when I saw that you linked to "Stunky" instead of "Stunky (Pokémon)" it made me think that you need a notice. to link to "Stunky (Pokémon)", The easiest way is to type {{p|Stunky}} when editing your page. You can find other link templates at the List of link templates. Remember to use them as much as possible or you will get yelled at by an administrater (Trust me, I've been there).

PS: I fixed your mistake this time, but next time your on your own. Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 21:03, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Dolphin, maybe Landfish wanted it that way on his/her userpage. Yes, they should be used always in the mainspace, but the userspace doesn't matter. The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 21:10, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Then how come I got yelled at for not using them on my page (If you don't belive me, check my talk page)? Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 21:21, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
I didn't see any yelling, but that was probably to make sure you didn't get into the habit of using them in the mainspace. The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 21:26, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia

WP:CHU; keep in mind that they will not let you do this unless you have a substantial amount of edits. A lot of the time, new-ish users are just told to create a new account. I don't know how many edits you have, so I don't know if this applies. — THE TROM — 02:35, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Dratini

Please don't go inserting false information like you did on Dratini δ (EX Dragon Frontiers 46)‎. That piece of trivia was wrong. Dratini is normally Dragon-type in the video games, not Water-type. Furthermore, even if that piece of trivia had accurate information, it was still not notable trivia for inclusion in the article. --Shiningpikablu252 01:17, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

MischiefMaker

And who would this be?--RexRacer 01:51, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Please be aware that if I recieve no response from either of you in three days time, the sock is getting perma-banned and you're facing block time as well.--RexRacer 01:57, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

dont sock, especially just to "prove" something. -- MAGNEDETH 02:11, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

One of your tags

The grammar on one of your usertags is incorrect. The one about DRAMATIC PEOPLE. It states "was no more" when it should state "were no more." --ニョロトノ666 21:43, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I know how you put user tags on the side

Before the title you put <div class="userbox"> and then when you're at the end, you put </div>. Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 20:02, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Signature policy

I hope that Cyndaquil image you used on User talk:TTEchidna/DawnPoké wasn't part of a signature you coded into your preferences, because if it is, it's a violation of the signature policy. The signature policy states that signatures are to be text-only. If that Cyndaquil's hard-coded into your preferences, hard-code it out of them or you could be in deep trouble. --Shiningpikablu252 15:38, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Fishtalk

Done. Do you want the redirect in your sandbox deleted? —darklordtrom 01:22, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Done. —darklordtrom 01:31, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Something that bulbapedia forgot

Ice ball was used in the anime but no one have not add that.

Hi

I don't know if your new or not, but instead of trying to do trivia, try fixing up some articles. And sprite trivia is not really necessary unless it's notable.--Midnight Blue 01:55, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

I saw you in the move project

And I think also that some moves does not have a picture to them in the anime, you can put it. And... I can't update because I don't understand how to edit complicated things... 12:23, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

WWWHHHHYYYY

why. why why why?? -- MAGNEDETH 19:21, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Pointless...Porygon-Z 19:21, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
. . . Hmm . . . OH! I think after looking at that i understand why it was pointless. --Merry Christmas! Landfish7 22:25, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

How?!

how do you make the magikarp follow you on screen??--Ani403MS.pngLambieSpr 3e 186.gif 02:54, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Click here for my response♥--Lambie 05:50, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Zoroark (movie 13)

Yeah.... next time, if you're going to copy/paste someone's userspace article into your own, it would be nice if you ask permission (or at least give credit). ~ solaris 00:15, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
